Local Authorities using our online search hub ensure the most effective and efficient return of searches to the end client.
tmcore is an online property data hub which helps local authorities and other search providers streamline operations, save time and reduce costs.
Since we were granted the first NLIS licence in 2000, we've developed an excellent understanding of the needs and issues faced by land charges departments at local authorities. In 2009, we set about creating tmcore, which harnesses our experience and technology for the benefit of the property transaction.
Since then we have linked thousands of conveyancers to all 348 local authorities, enabling them to get official searches delivered direct to their desktops, without incurring unnecessary fees or being bound by complicated systems.
Local Authority land charges departments can take advantage of our technology to add advanced features to their own websites. For example, several authorities use our LA Look Up tool on their website, allowing visitors to quickly and easily identify contact details for the correct authority for any property in England or Wales.
tmcore is also used extensively by more than 30 search companies providing over 12,000 searches a month, from local searches to drainage and water, chancel, environmental and more.
Our innovative online mapping services are intuitive to use and packed with features that make life easier for your client. Using our mapping microsite you can provide the following services to your customers:
A local authority in London has saved time and money switching from paper-based search documents to tmcore's online system.
Prior to the switch, the process was inefficient and expensive. It took on average 40 days to return searches – one of the lengthiest turnarounds in the country – and incurred thousands of pounds in annual postage costs. Manual processing was labour intensive, from printing and scanning documents to mailing, with staff shortages prolonging on the already time-heavy procedure.
After switching to an online process, the local authority enjoyed significant cost savings thanks to a decrease in postage and paper costs plus fewer staff hours. Able to achieve a highly efficient workflow with fewer staff, the department reduced the time of its search turnaround from 40 days to just 17.

How to contact us
Introduction from the Managing Director
Slavery and human trafficking remains a hidden blight on our global society. We all have a responsibility to be alert to the risks, however small, in our business and in the wider supply chain. Staff are expected to report concerns, and management are expected to act upon them.
Modern slavery is a criminal offence under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Modern slavery can occur in various forms, including servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. This document sets out the policy of tmgroup with the aim of the prevention of opportunities for modern slavery to occur within its businesses or supply chain. This policy’s use of the term ‘modern slavery’ has the meaning given in the Act. As tmgroup has an annual turnover in excess of £36m, we are required by the Modern Slavery Act 2015 to provide a statement of intent to all of our employees and suppliers.
tmgroup comprises of IT (Development, Infrastructure and Service Desk), Operations, Finance, Sales and Marketing and HR.
Our Supply Chains
Our supply chain includes obtaining property searches from Local Authorities and other professional Search providers, outsourced payroll, office stationery providers, IT Vendors, recruitment consultants, site maintenance contractors, cleaning contractors, external storage, kitchen supplies and waste disposal.
Our Policies on Slavery and Human Trafficking
Our Anti-Slavery statement reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
Due Diligence Process on Slavery and Human Trafficking
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk:
Supplier Adherence to our Values
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. We expect all those in our supply chain and contractors to comply with our values. The SMT and all managers are responsible for compliance in their respective departments and for their supplier relationships.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to relevant members of staff. All Directors have been briefed on the subject.
Our Effectiveness in combatting Slavery and Human Trafficking
We communicate with the next link in the supply chain and monitor their understanding of, and compliance with, our expectations to measure how effective we have been to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our group's slavery and human trafficking statement for the current financial year
